Abstract

PROBLEMS IN MEDICAL EDUCATION  The Council on Medical Education and Hospitals presents a series of articles on topics of current major importance in medical education. The first of these is a report on further education desired by medical officers after the present war. This study is being conducted by the Committee on Postwar Medical Service, with which the Council on Medical Education and Hospitals operates in close collaboration. This committee was established in February 1943 by the American Medical Association with the cooperation of the American College of Physicians and the American College of Surgeons. There is also representation on the committee from the Association of American Medical Colleges, the American Hospital Association, the Catholic Hospital Association, the Federation of State Medical Boards of the United States, the Procurement and Assignment Service, the Advisory Board for Medical Specialties and the Veterans Administration.
